The 12 judges decided that Georgia Ruth from Aberystwyth for her debut album Week of Pines should win the Welsh Music Prize 2013. Georgia has been making music for a number of years now, wowing audiences with her beautiful tales and her harp playing. With her friends in Cowbois Rhos Botwnnog (WMP 2012 nominees, incidentally), and producer David Wrench, Georgia made a stunning album which is impresive in its instrumentation, topics and ambience.
Daughter came into the Live Lounge on my weekend show on BBC Radio 1 recently, and covered this. It seems to have had 3million views at the time of writing. Daft Punk’s funky original was everywhere this summer, and sounding pretty damn brilliant. Daughter’s debut album If You Leave was also released on 4AD this summer, and looks set to warm many a heart in years to come. And what a cover!
At the 8th Latitude Festival where I curate the Lake Stage, I met up with Band App and they asked me questions on a sofa about the festival, music, my involvement, and things like that.

Canadians Half Moon Run came into Maida Vale to do a very good session for the show on BBC Radio 1 recently.
Thanks James Watts, CEO of So Ghetto for sending this my way. He sounds like a right cheeky chappy. Juice.
Was lucky enough to see this talented young singer songwriter in Austin at SXSW 2013. He’s Texan, and this vegas tune floors me everytime.
